“GREAT location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2009

Location, location, location.

We knew it was in the Park 93 area, but were amazed to realize how great the location was. Steps to the park, and maybe a 10/15 minute (USD$2.50 taxi ride) to the T Zone / Zona Rosa area.

The room was apartment style: kitchenette, couch/seating area and sleeping area. Our room also had a small balcony (not great view, but nice to have). While the bedding was clean, and the room and bathroom were clean-enough but a bit dingy.

*Free wi-fi*

The service was ok. The front desk spoke English well enough, but the porter and doorman did not.

We stayed here for 5 nights while exploring Bogota. The rooms are more like small apartments, spacious and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. The location was great, a sort walking distance from bars and restaurants, and a very drive to another area full of things to do. Highly recommend this hotel.

Great location! Walking distance to Parque de la 93 where you can find some fine restaurants, shops, bars, clubs. Not very far from financial district, shopping malls. Located in a very quiet, residential area in one of the best neighborhoods in town. The staff can't be more friendly, they are always there to help and assist you to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and well furnished. Breakfast buffet is included and you will not leave the hotel a bit hungry! Quality food and great service! I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and family without hesitation.

From the moment we pulled up to the place, the warmth of the staff and place made us feel at home. Our suite was on the ground floor....very simple, clean and perfect. And their continental breakfast is no joke! Freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs (your choice), fresh fruits and warm baked goods (including pan de yuco which is tradition in colombia) every morning. The location was perfect.....one block from Parque 93 and walking distance to la Zona T which is where the shopping centers (plus more restaurants and bars) is located. I had never been to Bogota before so finding the right hotel and location was very important and we certainly nailed it with Casa Real which is indeed, home away from home. Look no further....this is the place to be.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2009

The hotel wasn't as nice as I expected based on the reviews I read. The room we had was a junior suite, supposedly non-smoking. Upon arrival at the hotel, the front desk staff were pleasant. They allowed us to check-in and eat breakfast even though we arrived very early. The continental breakfast was decent.

The room itself was a disappointment. As soon as we entered the room, it had a vague odor which I later realized was stale cigarette smoke. The room decoration and furniture were modern, and the bed was comfortable. The television was very out-dated.

The bathroom needed remodeling. There were holes in the wall where there used to be a telephone. My wife and I tried to take a bubble bath in the dingy whirlpool tub, but the plug was damaged. After that, we tried to take use the shower which would constantly change temperature. The shower stall door was difficult to close which allowed it to leak. The was only one piece of soap in the room even though there was a kitchenette with a sink, a sink in the bathroom, a tub and a shower.

When we checked out of the hotel, we mentioned that we were supposed to have a non-smoker's room. The front desk staff didn't bother to respond. So, that was my experience at the Casa Real. Your mileage my vary.

If you're planning to go to Bogota, select your hotel early because last minute shoppers will have few good options. I've stayed in more than a few hotels in Bogota and each has room for improvement. Or, you can wait until 2010 when the new Marriott is completed.

We stayed inthis hotel for four nights. It is located 1 1/2 blocks away from Parque de la 93. A place full of the best restaurants of Bogota and exciting nightlife. The staff is very friendly and willing to help all the time. They help you make your stay as pleasant as possible. Zona Rosa is only a few minutes away by taxi. There are great malls in the area too. I strongly recommend this hotel.
